QFT!! Since when have we become such mindless zombies that we see the NOT SCALING of quests and enemies to your level a bad thing?

Look at how many BN people have preordered and keep buying GTA V for PC at full price even though Rockstar has repeatedly treated PC gamers like lepers. Then think and then answer that "mindless zombie" question for yourself.
The vast majority of gamers are mindless consumerist zombies who will lap up anything as long as it makes them believe they will become a member of the cool kids club if they join the lead lemmings who make the call on what is "awesome".
God forbid anyone should activate their own brain and make a stand. Or maybe even pass on a game if the company making it is known for despicable behavior.
No, Sir. Today's gamers deserve level scaling because they are too retarded to handle anything else. Sad but true.

This is what, the third major release in 2 years?

If we don't delve too deeply into the details of which platform got it when and if Syndicate makes it on time, it'll be the 3rd major release on major platforms in less than 12 months.
Rogue and Unity both came out in November 2014. This one is scheduled for October 2015. If we expand the time span to two years it would be four major releases because Black Flag came out in late October 2013.

Ok I must say I never played any AC games but today on local news I heard this title was made 100% in Québec and the Ubi building is 2 kilometers from my home.

Where does it say "100%"? It just says that the lead team is in Quebec. The AC games are usually a massive collaborative effort between many Ubi studios all over the world (Canada, France, Romania, Singapore etc.). The end credits of AC4 Black Flag rolled for over 40(!) minutes because of all the many studios, subsidiaries and people that were involved in the project.

It even mentions the associate studios in the news blurb above (all the way at the bottom):
*Associate studios are Ubisoft Montreal, Ubisoft Singapore, Ubisoft Annecy, Ubisoft Montpellier, Reflections, a Ubisoft studio, Ubisoft Sofia, Ubisoft Shanghai, Ubisoft Kiev and Ubisoft Bucharest.

"We are facing a lot of enemies, so the head first approach is probably not a good idea."

Based upon my experience with the Assassin's Creed franchise, odds are pretty good that there could be an entire army rushing in and the main character would be just fine.

Indeed. The ticket to success has always been not to attack but just stand there and counter every attack. You could easily beat dozens of enemies at a time by just counter-attacking in previous games.

Is there any truth to not being able to play the game Monday because of a day one patch that won't come until Tuesday?

Ah so you believe I made that up eh? Come on. Trustworthy uncle CJ wouldn't do that to you now, would he? *snicker* I mean I'm cruel but not that cruel.

OK, seriously check here. The big question obviously is when will they make available that missing file. I would guess at or around the official release time to avoid "leaks" (= even more rampant piracy than this game will suffer from in any case).




Q: Do I need Internet access to install the retail PC version of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt?

A: The initial, pre-premiere retail PC batch of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt needs to download a file from our servers to allow play. This file will either be downloaded automatically during installation process or you can choose to download it manually from a dedicated website. Since we have no DRM in the game, this is a security measure we needed to incorporate so the game doesn’t leak during the production process. No worries, the file will not be big. Copies of The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt produced after launch will not contain this security feature.

Aaaww all those senseless sensitivities when I was just trying to poke some fun, guys. I don't care if you put me on ignore by the way. I don't even want to know how many hundreds of oversensitive sissies have put me on ignore over the years. Oh well. Their loss if they miss out on my highly intelligent and educational posts.

Maybe retail will jump to releasing Monday. Sounds pretty ideal to come home from work Monday and be able to game all night and the next day if you wanted to do that.

AFAIK the PC version will not work without the day one patch that will presumably not be made available before the times stated in the news post.
I know for a fact that several German retailers will start shipping on the 15th but it ain't gonna do no good without the missing data from the day one patch.

If you think that you're providing such a service to us all with your constant haranguing of our members (seriously, take a long look at your own post history), then maybe we're not good enough for you, and you should take your comments elsewhere on the internets to some place where you can be properly appreciated.

Hey someone has to keep you guys on your toes and activate yallz lone brain cells every once in a while. I'm doing VERY HARD voluntary charitable community work here, man!
Educating people about time zones is just one of many services I offer. Let me know if you seek assistance in any other area of life and I will do my best to share my wealth of knowledge. Looking forward to hearing from you soon!

Love,

Don't act like you already knew all of this. It's obvious that you figured it out after the post by Blue or else you wouldn't have needed to edit your comment.

I only edited the part that actually says "EDIT". We posted at the same time. I was actually 100% expecting a not-so-intelligent EU player to complain that the US are getting it early when in reality everyone is getting it at the same time apparently.
What I did NOT expect was someone like you (from the US I presume) to celebrate because of an "early" release but I found that not-so-intelligent in a funny way, too.

As for my expectations, well, going by the surprised comments here I must be some kind of genius indeed because, yes, I fully expected the game of a EUROPEAN dev/publisher to unlock at midnight EUROPEAN time on the 19th. Now I did not know whether they would go with GMT or CET (+/- 1 hour difference) but why would they go with any other time zones?

You guys also need to lighten up a bit. Come on. It was a lighthearted fun troll tackling from the side, nothing serious.

Most people are not sitting around thinking about the date time line change from the EU to the US.

Oh, yes. I know. I always forget about living in this actual thing called a world, too.

Or maybe not...

Maybe that's why a lot of devs focus on MP these days, it kinda forces people to buy so they don't miss the big wave of initial players and the levels and upgrades that are needed to stay relevant

Wow dude... if my life ever deteriorates to the point that I feel like I MUST buy a game early in order to stay "relevant" then someone please call a doctor or a hitman to put me out of my miserable existence. Jesus H Christ.

That's the way to do it with these guys. There'll be some enhanced edition that is cheaper and more polished a ways down the line. Better experience for less money? Sign me up.

And me, too, but let us spare a thought of gratefulness for the early adopters who are keeping CDP in business while also testing the game for us and providing valuable feedback for the EE.
I'm sure this game will be awesome once the EE (maybe even including the expansions?) will be out.
We will also have better hardware when we play it like Intel Skylake/Cannonlake and 16nm FinFET nVidia Pascal GPUs to enjoy this at ÜBER+++ settings with Triss giving free blowjobs as a bonus.

The extra key isn't meant for extra people; just convenience... But they'll be sold... A lot...

Read the quoted bit from the news again. I believe you might have missed the part where they talked about linking existing Frontier accounts with Steam. The key you can generate on your Frontier account page and then register on Steam will only work with the Frontier account it belongs to. Selling the key makes no sense unless you want to scam someone or sell the entire account.

For me to get interested in BF4, they'd need to give premium away for free or bundle the main game and premium and sell it for $9.99 total. Since that will never happen they can go and shove their free stuff right up their dumb ass!

It's gotten much better, but last steam sale I still noticed it, errors with steam store while browsing and trying to buy, etc. It's always the front end, never the actual content bandwidth as far as I can tell.

Same here. To say these things are completely a thing of the past is unfortunately wishful thinking. However, it's usually only on the first three days of a sale and then also only around the time the store updates which is 10:00AM PST/PDT AFAIK when everyone and their dawg is checking for the latest daily deals.
As for content bandwidth, well, I've had it happen when I wanted to download a game at peak times during a sale that Steam gave me a "please try again later" message. Sure, it only took a few retries to get through eventually but still annoying when you can't access the games you have actually fookin' paid for.

That's nice I guess, don't really need it on Steam though.

I thought I recall some people complaining about this recently, wanting all their games in the same place. Overall, I think this is a good thing, if for no other reason than people have the choice.

The initial complaints were caused by the fact that Frontier said pre-release that the game would not (never) be released on Steam due to technical reasons with their (Frontier's) entire backend.
And then all of a sudden a couple months back it turned out to be possible to bring it to Steam contrary to previous claims.
So many people who would have preferred a Steam version from the start but bought the game anyway believing it would never be made available on Steam were not amused initially when it was not made clear whether you would be able to port existing copies to Steam or if you'd have to buy a second all new Steam copy.
Luckily for all sides, Frontier did the right thing here by offering Steam keys to current owners.
